A Search Engine for Images

A search engine was designed and implemented to allow campus faculty and staff to access the Campus Collection of the University Of Maine Museum Of Art. The Campus Collection refers to the subset of the Museum art collection that is available for display on the University of Maine Campus. University faculty and staff can request items from the Campus Collection. With the search engine, users can easily and quickly search for and request desired items. In this paper, the necessity of designing an efficient search engine and the significance of this project will be addressed in considering the given drawbacks presented in the existing management system for the available art works.
